A behind-the-scenes reveal of Steven Spielberg's upcoming 2011 motion capture 3-D film based on the universally beloved comic book series The Adventures of Tintin that will answer the inevitable question: how on earth did they do THAT? With forewards by both Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson, this book is the ultimate authority on the film event of the year. The artists at Weta Digital and Weta Workshop were thrilled to get the opportunity to work with Steven Spielberg to bring Herge's wonderful characters to the big screen in The Adventures of Tintin. They spent five years working on this movie. This book tells the story of how the filmmakers started with the original Herge artwork and books and ended up with what is seen on-screen. It features early concept drawings, previs sequences, models, costume designs and final stills from the film. The book focuses on the creative process, showing the many designs that made it into the movie and others that didn't. It highlights the attention to detail, skill and creativity of all the artists involved in the making of the movie. The story is told by the artists themselves, who talk about their inspirations, techniques and experiences. Through them we gain a true insight into the creative thinking behind this groundbreaking feature film.
